On tap at Albertsons. Hazy orange amber pour topped with a small creamy head. Mild musty citrus aroma, like tangerines. Taste is equal mix of hops and malt, velvety mouth feel, soft finish. More golden ale than APA.

I enjoyed this one at the brewery today. As advertised, an all Colorado hop beer with some even coming from employees' back yards! The info card says that the hops were used within days of being picked so I take that to mean it's probably a wet hop beer.

It has a hazy golden orange color with thick creamy white head.

Aroma is nice and hoppy, somewhat grassy, not overly powerful.

Flavor is very good, hoppy but with good balance. It has a fresh, almost resiny character. Cascade, nugget, Red Vine, and chinook hops were all used in this beer.

Mouthfeel is very creamy and smooth. This may be the only American pale ale I've had on nitro and it really works well. It's just too bad that I can't take a growler home because this is a great pale ale.
